Universeum - Review

Gothenburg’s science center – The Universeum is a marvel house! This popular attraction attracts thousands of visitors to its multitude of exhibitions, aquariums and interactive experiments. Expect long waiting lines so it is better to buy tickets for Universeum well in advance. You can check out Universeum ticket prices and combo packages with Universeum tickets for excellent deals and offers.

Universeum is the science centre of Gothenburg and is the abode of experiments and experience that can win over different challenges. The place is simply fascinating and unique. A visit to the Universeum would go beyond the usual expectations from a science museum.

The aquariums of Universeum are some of the biggest in Europe and it also holds the largest exhibitions. What could possibly be more exciting than experiencing the rainforest right in the heart of Gothenburg? In this rainforest animals move around freely. Going on a safari offers the chance to get up close and personal with birds and enjoy their constant chirping. It will make an individual feel amidst nature. Apart from the animals and birds, one can experience the movements of butterflies, lizards and monkeys. The biggest tank in this science centre has eight different types of sharks and the biggest one is known as the sand tiger shark. The morays, octopus and the saw fish swim and they often come to the surface of the water. Also, visit the popular attractions in the city by following Gothenburg itinerary 1 day.

Universeum, Gothenburg Reviews

  • Fun place to visit with kids. It has something for everyone. The exhibits are interesting, and the fish aquarium was beautiful. If you need more detailed information than visit their website. My favourite part was when everyone could make their own soap. It has some games, all of them have something to do with science. Highly recommend this to anyone even vaguely interested in any of the exhibits.

  • A great place to spend time. Lots of interactive experiences! The place is multi floored with bridges, stairways and caves and diverse exhibits from woolly mammoths, rain forests, aquatic/ marine life, technology space etc. has something for everyone. A fun place for children where they can learn about the nature around us. One of the floors has creative and interactive activities which makes a great breather between the different exhibits. The dolphins, small monkeys and the birds were a cool sight. The aquarium and science center will keep the curious minds enthralled.

  • Sweden's National Science Centre is a compact but full on experience. Walk through three distinctly different areas and then into two floors of hands-on practical experience. With skilled, friendly and professional staff it is a place well worth a visit. But your ticket online...it won't give you a discounted price but it will let you pass the queue. Have fun...

  • Of all the places in the world, I never thought I'd see a sloth for the first time in Sweden! Sloths aside, though, the space is amazing and very interesting. The animals are kept in a safe environment that keeps the right temperature for their needs and that allows for them to run around quite freely within the area of the rainforest. Overall visitors are very respectful of the signs asking them not to feed, pet or disturb the animals, which allows for a great and unique experience as a visitor. I dearly recommend it. Had a great time there!

  • Me and my boyfriend had such a great time here during our visit to Gothenburg! It's suited for couples as well as families. You can walk through a jungle style area while looking at fish and various other animals. Of course it's not the same as a zoo but it definitely has atmosphere. We wanted to grab a bite at the rooftop restaurant but unfortunately it was closing. We also really liked the 'space' area. Worth paying a visit!
